Dzukou Valley is situated at an altitude of 2438 m above sea level, behind the Japfu Peak
. It is about 30 km south of Kohima
, half of which has to be approached through rough trekking. The entire valley is overshadowed with a type of tough bamboo brush to make the place appear like a mown lawn. The serpentine stream that flows through Dzukou becomes frozen during winter. In summer, wild herbs sprout along the riverbanks.
Rhododendrons in white and other colors ornament the hills surrounding the vale. This is one of the best trekking spots in the northeastern region.
